Scam alert: Fake PayPal email scam
A fake PayPal email scam is making the rounds and FOX8 On Your Side Consumer Reporter Melissa Painter offers advice on how to avoid the scammers.
The email asks you to confirm your identity by filling out a form and sending it to PayPal. The scammer will also ask you include a picture of your ID and a proof of address (like a bank statement or utility bill).
The email includes a “case number” and appears to be official, however it’s certainly a fake.
Reminder: Companies will never request personal information via email. When in doubt, delete the email.
